Gaiman To Adapt “American Gods” For HBO.

From The Guardian:

Author Neil Gaiman told the crowd at the Edinburgh Books Festival this weekend that he’s set to bring his best-seller to pay cable.

Cinematographer Robert Richards (“Inglourious Basterds“) makes his directorial debut with the series. Tom Hanks’ Playtone is producing, The Guardian reports. Gaiman hopes to write the pilot, the last episode and maybe the middle.

Of Richards’ involvement, Gaiman told the Edinburgh festival that, “he loves it, he has all these great, mad ideas. Having fallen in love with it while other people fell by the wayside, he stayed with it.”

Side note: Gaiman’s first “proper” book “Neverwhere” is a huge favorite of mine. And if you haven’t seen the BBC series on DVD, I don’t know what you’re waiting for.
